Hills conquered. Finish line crossed. Another challenge completed. Yesterday my friend and partner-in-Real-Estate Cherie and I ran the Big Foot Endurance 5 & 10 Mile Trail Race at Rockburn Branch Park in Elkridge, MD to support Parkinson's Research and to honor our parents. We are both daughters of Parkinson's patients and #realtorswhocare. We are grateful to RipIt Events and Big Foot Endurance for organizing such events, for raising awareness and funds to support Parkinson's Research and to find a cure someday (soon). This was the first-of-its-kind event for us, but it won't be the last.

Promoting Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) in Maryland is an ideal solution to expand housing opportunities. Many states  have passed laws that allow multiple housing units to exist on a lot that was formally established as a single family property. An ADU is like a second back yard house or "Granny Flat". A home owner could utilize the ADU as a long term rental to offset mortgage payments or have In-Laws move in , but not literally in their house. This is a great way to help fill the housing shortage, expand the affordable housing stock available, increase density while limiting urban sprawl, and provide home owners an additional source of income on their existing investment.  To learn more visit:https://opendoorsmaryland.org/#OpenDoorsMD

One of my questions when hiring someone, whether for business or personal: Do you like what you do? And then listen to the answer. 'I love what I do,' said with enthusiasm, is what I want to hear.I have tried this when working with a flipper, contractor, agent, attorney, etc.  And there are specific questions. If someone does rehabs on properties, I ask them if they would allow their family members to live in the house. Listen to the answer. In my decades of RE, I have only met one rehabber who said he would never sell a home that was not good or safe enough for him and his family.If a professional says they used to love the business, but there are too many problems now, listen. Is their passion gone, or maybe they never had that 'fire in the belly.' As a brand new REALTOR®,  a 'seasone...

Charred Oak Estates Market ReportBethesda, MDNovember 2021  Curious about what's going on with real estate in Charred Oak Estates and colder weather and change in Covid protocols is impacting home sales?Let's look at the numbers:  As you can see from the charts, the numbers of Sold properties is above the 5-year average, the number of New Pending Sales is above and the number of Active Listings is below that of the 5-year average. This low inventory continues to be a challenge throughout the DC Metro Area. Very few homes are sitting on the market.   March's inventory of homes for sale was a bit higher than the 5-year average with one month of inventory on the market. The number of new listings entering the market in October was also slightly higher than the 5-year average. The uncertain...
